About me

Thanks for looking at my profile, by coming onto the counselling directory - you've taken the first and biggest step - a great start.

I work in both private practice across a couple of sites and also in the voluntary sector with various charities based across the East Midlands. So far, my work has focused on various issues, but I've mainly specialised in the following: relationships, stress, anxiety rated concerns, panic attacks, all forms of abuse, including sexual, mental and domestic, bereavement and terminal illness.ŵ

As well as supporting those with personal issues, I have a keen interest in working with people with work related stress and anxiety concerns. Many of us feel we have to 'just get on with' the pressures that are put on us in the workplace (and sometimes pressures we put on ourselves), with stress accounting for 37%* of work related ill health, learning to cope with those pressures, means a healthier home and working life.

I have experience in face to face, online and telephone counselling, all of which have their place and ultimately its a personal preference.

I am a registered member of BACP.

Training, qualifications & experience

After 20+ years of experiencing various roles in a large corporate organisation, I commenced training on a part time basis in 2009 and qualified in 2013.

I have worked in various charities supporting individuals with a range of different issues. I have worked for the Coping with Cancer, Sure Start, a domestic/sexual violence counselling service and an online charity that provides short and long term counselling to both men and women with a wide range of issues.

I am an associate of Judith Sullivan & Associates and predominantly offer counselling & psychotherapy from my home office near Syston/Sileby LE14.

Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (QCF).

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
